One problem apparently left to fester by the federal government is the creation of thousands of immigration orphans who may never see their deported parents again. However, if Congress passes immigration reform, thousands of these children may be happily reunited with their parents, both in California and other states. California has by far the largest population of children left behind by deported parents.
Most economists agree that when businesses are able to employ people while also making a profit through their endeavors, it helps the economy's road to recovery. This is why many California employers believe it is important for the U.S. to update its immigration policy in order to make it easier for them to hire an immigrant worker with a work visa. Industries ranging from agriculture to computer technology have benefited through the availability of immigrant workers.
